Man Box Culture and the Backlash Against Women’s Equality

How the brutal suppression of boys’ authentic connection drives our culture of inequality

The fight for women’s equality is creating upheaval that is explosive in its implications for men’s core sense of identity. #MeToo is a particularly timely earthquake, coming at a liminal moment in history when much of what once underpinned men’s identities, both social and economic, is collapsing.


For generations, men have been conditioned to compete for status, forever struggling to rise to the top of a vast Darwinian pyramid framed by a simple but ruthless set of rules. But the men who compete to win in our man box culture are collectively doomed to fail, because the game itself is rigged. We’re wasting our lives chasing a fake rabbit around a track, all the while convinced there’s meat to be had. There is no meat. We are the meat.
